Stuff New Zealand: Google Maps wants public’s help to master Māori place names

Stuff New Zealand: Google Maps wants public’s help to master Māori place names. “Google Maps promises it will start pronouncing Māori place names correctly by the end of the year. And the tech giant wants the public’s help to determine which names are being mispronounced by the app’s automated voice. An online platform, developed by Google and Vodafone, invites the public to drop pins on an interactive map of New Zealand to point out the cities, towns and streets that need linguistic attention.”
